Deep Water - 1981 - 6/10
AKA - Eaux Profondus

Classic French arthouse mystery thriller.
Young trophy bride (Isabelle Huppert) flirts and attracts numerous young swains.
Husband (a menacing Jean-Louis Trintignant) warns each of possible consequences.
Those who heed, flee. Those who abide, however …
Challenging in that the viewer never knows the relationship between husband and wife, or how much friends and neighbors (island of Jersey) turn a blind eye to.
Measured pace that delivers unexpected jolts.
Based on Patricia Highsmith novel.
